LibriVox recording of THE CHAPTER ENDS, by Poul Anderson.
Read by Phil Chenevert
Far, far in the future the Earth is still spinning around the Sun, on the edge of the galaxy, dozing comfortably in obscurity, forgotten by it's trillions of progeny and completely irrelevant. But this doesn't matter to the few millions who still live there in simplicity and quiet happiness. But then interstellar politics dictates that they must all leave Earth because ... well, listen to the story as told by the great Poul Anderson as he explores what the Earth means to humans and to one man in particular. (Summary by Phil Chenevert)

So sad I had to eat chocolate afterwards...
Dark of course.
Anyways, here we read about the end of the Earth as we know it. Oh, it's not destroyed, it's just that most people no longer care about it, except for a tiny group. And, that tiny group is being forcibly relocated. This is the tale of that evacuation.
Phil did an excellent job reading, but the story was too sad for me.
